I'm Back!

So I got totally slack the last month. Sue me. I'll post birthday pics and Halloween pics and Thanksgiving pics (wow I really totally dropped the blogging ball huh?) this week. But now for my moment of storage genius!

I have been looking for a wooden spinning storage rack for my ink pads so I don't need to dig through a steralite drawer every time I needed one. The problem they are super expensive and because they are huge and wood they cost an additional fortune to ship! And you know me I am cheap cheap cheap! So when I found a seller on ebay with a free shipping offer AND I could take advantage of Microsoft's 30% cash back offer I jumped on the deal.

My unit arrived super fast and it is beautifully crafted. I highly recommend these to anyone!

Of course the first thing I set out to do was to decorate it. There are these empty spaces on each side and I had visions of hamblee mod tree rubons and decoupaged birds but then a light bulb went off. I could actually make USE of that space!!!

I had seen this great storage idea for stickles on 2Peas and realized it would work perfectly on the empty space on my spinning rack. I was originally going to build a framed display for them but I don't have a lot of spare desk space. Using space on something I am keeping right at hand was just perfect!

So here it is - My storage genius moment for the month.

    Wow, what a great idea! What did you use to hold the Stickles? I couldn't really tell from the photo. What are the dimensions of the little ink shelves? I wonder if the Stampin Up ink pads will fit in there. They almost look too small.
